American Elm Tree

The American Elm Tree, also known as the white elm or water elm, is a large and hardy deciduous tree species native to eastern North America. Scientifically referred to as Ulmus americana, American Elm Trees are notable for their expansive canopies that reach widths of 60’-100’ | 18-30 m and overall heights between 50’-100’ | 15-30 m. American Elms are naturally found in rich habitats that include floodplains, streams, swamps, hillsides, uplands, and mountain rivers. Once living for several hundred years, the lifespans of American Elms today are now limited to under 100 years due to Dutch elm disease.

Common Questions
Common Questions
Common Questions
How fast does an American Elm Tree grow?
American Elm Trees grow quickly in any environment at a rate of 3’-6’ | .9-1.8 m every year.
Why do leaves change color in autumn?
Leaves on trees change color in the fall season due to reduced chlorophyll pigment production in preparation for shedding their leaves for the winter. Brighter leaf colors occur in environments where nights are cold and days are shorter.
How big are American Elm Trees?
American Elm Trees commonly grow to heights between 50’-100’ | 15-30 m with large canopy widths between 60’-100’ | 18-30 m.
Why do trees lose their leaves?
Trees shed their leaves to conserve water for either the winter season in temperate climates or for the dry season in tropical and subtropical environments.
How long does an American Elm Tree live for?
American Elm Trees once lived up to 250 years, but due to Dutch Elm disease, most American Elm Trees today will not live beyond 100 years.
What is a Deciduous Tree?
Deciduous Trees are trees that naturally shed their leaves during specific seasons.
